[Sneak Preview Release] KatchUp - The one and only bottling game!

We're getting ready for a full release media campaign for Katchup but coincidentally we forgot to move the release date back to the full release date, so now it's available in the Appstore.

iTunes Link

What the heck, we might as well have a sneak preview release for the holiday weekend in celebrations.

KatchUp is a new iPhone game brought to life by LeftRight Studios, the independent game developer behind the popular and addictive smackBOTS. KatchUp offers players the chance to test their skill at managing the conveyor belts at their own ketchup bottling facility.

Gameplay revolves around the time-management system in which players attempt to bottle their ketchup while keeping pace with the conveyor belts and making sure to avoid any mishaps when strange items make their way towards the ketchup vat. Players will flick items like televisions, rubber ducks and more off the belts to keep the factory in good working order. How’d they get there? We’re not sure – but keep them out of the ketchup! Luckily, the physics engine will help make sure you grab items realistically and keep on bottling.

When the ketchup vat is full players will flick a switch and start a second conveyor belt that triggers the bottling process. Players will move the dispenser left and right while keeping pace with the speed of bottles as they pass. Filling as many bottles as possible is the goal of any worthy ketchup tycoon.

KatchUUp doesn’t only propose players to keep on bottling, but it allows them to share their bottling savvy on social networks like Twitter. Players can tweet their bottling record in-game and challenge friends and followers to take their turn at Katch-Up.

Katch-Up is available now on the iPhone App Store at the introductory price of $0.99. Watch the gameplay video to see a ketchup tycoon in action, and don’t forget to upload your Katch-Up scores to see who will be the bottler of the year. Bottle or get canned!

Examiner.com was kind enough to name KatchUp as notable iPhone game release for Thanksgiving - http://bit.ly/5QOsNI
